Gun range planned near 2 elementary schools upsets Loveland-area parents


CINCINNATI — Some parents in southwestern Ohio are upset over plans to open an indoor gun range just 100 yards away from two elementary schools.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports  that the proposed gun range in Loveland is especially controversial in light of last week's massacre at a Connecticut school that included the deaths of 20 children.

The range is proposed for what is now a vacant storefront near Loveland Primary School, which has about 500 students in the first and second grades, and Loveland Elementary School, which has about 700 third- and fourth-graders.

Concerned parents spoke out about the plan at a Loveland City Council meeting this week.

City leaders say the range is legally permitted at the proposed site.
